The park has 2 kings and one queen burial grounds. It is a nice place to walk in Seoul also best visited when the cherry blossom usually begins to bloom. the seen is very romantic. The walk effort is moderate, suitable for all ages.

This was the first place I visited in Seoul, it was AMAZING! The entrance is very cheap and it's a huge land where you can walk around for hours between trees and beautiful buildings. Downer is that you cannot approach the tombs, where the statues...More

This is worth the 1000 Won (less than $1) to go in and walk around. It's lovely, even in winter, and there are nice trails to walk around the burial mounds. There's a video to watch (with English explanations) that was very helpful in understanding...More

Being in winter month, I enjoyed the cool air, peace and quiet in this heritage site. But other than that, there's nothing much to see. Admittedly, entrance fee is cheap at 1,000won. The museum on the right of the entrance is worth a visit before...More

Out of respect the tombs are fenced off/ closed off from the public, but if you feel like going for a bit of a walk in the park for 1000won and you have time to spare go for it. Otherwise the brochure itself will give...More

myriad of things to do and see, including a large

one of Korea’s most important places of worship. Or
